Better base. Better face


Last week a team from VO5 asked me to take some impromptu street style hair photos. Normally I would freak out that I didn’t have time to prepare or that I needed to retouch/re do my make up, but on this particularly day ‘it wasn’t a thing’. I was wearing two of my secret weapons.

A double Hat Trick +1


With SEVEN weddings for Mr G and I to go to between August and December, including one destination wedding; I am not only very excited and happy for the lovely couples, but have become increasingly excited and fascinated by hats, fascinators & head pieces! After some fun playing with accessories this week, I think I’d be quite happy wearing the same dress to ALL of the nuptials, and mixin’ it up with lots of different head gear..

 Thousands of people turned out to the Spring Lace & Tweed fair, making it one of the biggest Vintage events of the year, so far!  Of course this meant for LOTS of pictures in the L&T booth; making the decision for the ‘best dressed vintage’ shopper a mammoth task!
